Building History

Swedish-born architect John A. Creutzer, (1873-1929), designed this two-story, cross-gabled residence for Charles and Susan Hussey. In 1906, Charles Hussey, (born 11/06/1860 in Des Moines, IA-d. 01/18/1940 in Spokane, WA), worked for FInch and Campbell, a significant local mining company founded by John A. Finch and Amasa B. Campbell. By 1928, Hussey had moved on to other business enterprises, becoming Secretary of the Standard Silver-Lead Mining Company, Secretary of the Star Mining Company, and Secretary of the Blalock Fruit Company. (See Polk's Spokane, Washington, City Directory, 1928, p. 427.) He and his family continued to reside at this address until 1929. They then relocated to an apartment at West 1303 10th Avenue, Apartment #G (by 1930), and then to another at W. 1905 2nd Avenue, Apartment #K, by 1935. (See Polk's Spokane, Washington, City Directory, 1930, p. 379 and Polk's Spokane, Washington, City Directory, 1935, p. 335.)

His wife was Susan McNamee Hussey, (born 04/10/1866 in Saint Louis, MO-d. 04/09/1954 in Spokane, WA), with whom he had Loretta J. Hussey (born c. 1887 in ID), George Warren Hussey (born 06/25/1891 in Wallace, ID-d. 1942) and Helen D. Hussey (born c. 1896 in CO). In 1910, the family was prosperous to employ a servant, Hannah Hockel, (born c. 1886 in IA).
